Before & After School Clubs

Broomfield offers a variety clubs:

ART

There are three after school Art Clubs on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. These are taught by our artist-in-residence, Mrs Claudia Frey, also a former Broomfield parent and qualified art teacher. Mrs Frey is working across a range of exciting media and themes to enhance the established variety and range of art activities on offer during school time.

COOKERY

Our school chef Ms Scorer offers a Cookery Club for Years 3-6 on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

DALEY THOMPSON ATHLETICS CLUB

We are delighted to welcome Daley Thompson, former Broomfield parent and legendary Olympian, back to BHS with his athletics club. The club is taught by national level athletes who provide a brilliant training for children on Wednesdays. This type of training is an adapted version of what older children learn to do at athletics clubs so it is an excellent form of exercise and introduction to a sport in which the UK excels.

DRUM CLUB

Miss Lillia, part of the Rhythm Studio drum teaching school, leads our djembe based drum clubs on Fridays. We have our Junior Club during the day and a senior club after school. The children learn salsa based rhythms and learn to perform complex multi part pieces. It is fun, vibrant and a marvellous way for children to learn how to master rhythmic musical perfomance.

FOOTBALL

We offer three Football Clubs this year, on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays for children of different age groups with a focus on developing ball skills especially for the younger children.

KARATE & PEEWEE KARATE

Broomfield children have been learning karate with Sensei Debi Steven’s school since 2004 through her classes for Pee Wee and Funakoshi Shotokan karate. Broomfield is now a hotbed of young karateka, with most of our youngest children enjoying our optional in-school Pee Wee Karate lessons and many Year 1 and above children carrying on the sport within Sensei Debi’s Funakoshi Shotokan club lessons both here at school on Tuesday and Thursdays or at the Kew Scout Hut after school. http://www.peeweekarate.co.uk/broomfield.php and ttp://http//www.fskauk.co.uk/fska.php?p=broomfield

SPANISH

On Wednesdays the teachers from the Spanish Connection Language School run a weekly Spanish club for our younger pupils. The children learn through oral exercises and written work and are introduced to vocabulary and grammar appropriate for their age.

TECHNOKIDS

On Mondays, TechnoKids offer an ICT class. Technokids UK was launched in London in 1995 and has been teaching at Broomfield for over a decade. The aim of the classes is introducing children to the wonders of computers and multimedia, providing an additional extension from our in school computing lessons at Broomfield. Technokids at Broomfield is administered directly by the Technokids team at www.technokids.co.uk

AFTER SCHOOL CHILD CARE

For children requiring child care, we provide care and activities for children from 3.30-6pm on Mondays to Thursdays within the school grounds and facilities.

Our full time staff and classroom assistants are the main staff in our After School Club. We ensure all the children at the ASC have a drink, some fruit and some cake or a bun once they arrive after school. Then the children follow a mixture of quiet activities from reading, drawing, painting and craft work to homework for the older children.

We also make sure all the children do some physical exercise while at the club, using the playground as much as possible weather permitting, and the school gymnasium if necessary.

The ASC offers parents two options for care - until 4.30pm and until 6pm. We aim to be as flexible as possible while caring for the children. Full details of prices and availability are available from the School office.
